10th: - Fort Wayne Mad Ants - Obi Muonelo, Oklahoma State

Muonelo played with [Vernon] Goodridge on the Sixers summer league team, at which time I wrote this about him:

Muonelo is a fairly athletic wing player and a shooter, whose shot selection has improved over the years. To go with that athleticism, he is very strong, and can play good defense on opposing wings when he wants to. He also became an interested rebounder in his junior season, when Oklahoma State played a four guard lineup and needed someone (anyone) to do it.

[However], he has no stand-out characteristics about his game. Muonelo is prone to bad shots and prone to daydreaming on defense, and he loves the jumpshot more than he loves his strength advantage. His free throw shooting also got worse year on year in college, for no obvious reason whatsoever. Muonelo will probably be a fine D-Leaguer if he goes that route, and could well be back here next year. But he's not an NBA player. Not yet, anyway.


He's now gone that route, albeit not entirely on purpose; Muonelo signed earlier this month with German team EWE Baskets Oldenburg, but they exercised an opt-out clause in his contract after only two weeks. Ergo, Muonelo's now here in the D-League, where he should produce around 16/5.

Obi Muonelo

Muonelo is a fairly athletic wing player and a shooter, whose shot selection has improved over the years. To go with that athleticism, he is very strong, and can play good defense on opposing wings when he wants to. He also became an interested rebounder in his junior season, when Oklahoma State played a four guard lineup and needed someone (anyone) to do it.

But like Love, he has no stand-out characteristics about his game. Muonelo is prone to bad shots and prone to daydreaming on defense, and he loves the jumpshot more than he loves his strength advantage. His free throw shooting also got worse year on year in college, for no obvious reason whatsoever.
